In any case, it will be an interesting switch. I figure with all the other major lifts there is an emphasis on full range of motion, why not also on squats? I'll play it by ear on the first set of the next cycle and see how I feel going into it.5/3/1 Cycle 2 Set 3
5x100 jump rope alternated w/ 5x2 pullups
Pullups: 5x6,1x5 alternating grips
Dips: 4x9, 1x8
Running steps: 4 sets of 5x28 steps, 2 minutes rest inbetween
HR right after: 164 BPM
HR 6 minutes after: 114 BPM
Damn it was hot outside today - 90°F/32°C. I'm soaked and worn after doing the steps, but right now I'm having some dates and watermelon, followed up with a 12g of protein tofu block, so I'll soon feel better. I wish my office had air conditioning though...
Killed it on the Military press today. Damn I'm having a good week!
Last month I hit 5x130 lbs and today 6x135. I would say that's a strength increase
That last rep was ugly as sin though. I arched my back something fierce, was growling the whole way up, and my left side was totally lagging. My form went to shit and I just muscled it up on adrenaline. That is probably why I couldn't finish my programmed sets of pullups and dips.
I thought of skipping the steps today, as I'm going out clubbing tonight for the first time in over a year and will be up late and most likely do a little dancing/moshing/stomping/whatever. I'm going to be tired tomorrow!
